Willowing Lifebook 2013 Week 27-Embracing All Of You

As I sat and thought about all of my wishes and dreams for this lesson, I noticed that they all had to do with being happy- me, my family, my situation, etc.  So the theme for my piece is "Take a Voyage to your Happy Place".

I love the background because I used lots of modeling paste and sparkle watercolors and spray inks and such.  Hope you like it !  Oh, and the Hula girl is me..... someday..... when I make it to Hawaii.... that would make me happy :-)

Willowing LifeBook 2013 Week 26 with Joann Loftus

Well, with crappy internet and a messed up computer, here is what I came up with for my lesson this week....

First, I used one color sharpie to write down my my fears, another for my worries, and another for things that make me angry.

Then, I used a layer of gesso to cover those bad boys up :-)

Next, I collaged the sillouette of the strong woman with images that represented me.

After that I used watercolor crayons, stencils and sprays to create the background.

Last, I typed out the words and used gel medium to put the piece all together.
The words that I chose were from a journaling prompt from Effy the Wild's class "Moonshine Summer".
I wrote a love letter to myself and I thought that would be great to cover up the worries, doubts and anger issues I had :-)

Anyway, here it is..... taaadaa!
